The CW has quietly killed the only new drama it introduced this season. Runaway, a sort of family version of The Fugitive, was literally the least-watched prime time show on broadcast television with less than 2 million viewers. The network tried triage, moving the show from Monday to Sunday, but it didn't help.
Too bad; Runaway, with Donnie Wahlberg, Leslie Hope and Sarah Ramos, was a nifty little show that explored what being on the lam does to the dynamics of family life. Meanwhile, The CW's only new sitcom -- the perfectly awful The Game -- has been picked up for a full season. Sometimes you can make a pretty good case that what's wrong with American television is the viewers.
